Appearances & Mentions

Classification

Description

Iron Kissed

  • Tad was half-human. His human blood hadn't, as far as Mercy could see, lessened the affinity for metals he shared with his father. Mercy didn't know if he'd inherited his father's immortality: he was nineteen and looked it23

Frost Burned

  • Tad wasn't one of the half fae who were as powerless as most humans69
  • Control of the big guns (his power) isn’t what it should be195

Night Broken

  • He looked a little odd. The stick-out ears that had always given him an almost-comical appearance were now pointed, the bones of his face subtly rearranged to beauty as real and as human as Adam's. His eyes were not human at all: polished silver with a cat's-eye pupil of purple. He was a little taller than usual, a little buffer, a little more graceful, and a lot scarier169
  • Unaffected by foul smoke169
  • Found it easier to magically manipulate aluminum over steel171
  • Changes like Mercy- between one breath and the next. He was a little taller than usual and a lot handsomer. He looked clean-cut and real174
  • Tad was incredibly powerful174

Fire Touched

  • Can mold pipes into a weapon59

Relationships

Mercy and Tad

Moon Called

  • Mercy emails Tad every week298

Iron Kissed

  • Thinks Mercy can be too innocent172

Frost Burned

  • Tad and Mercy emailed once a week since he left, and she called him once a month to keep up. Tad was the little brother Mercy had never had, and in some ways, they were closer than she was to her half sisters. Tad and Mercy had more in common: neither of them quite fitting in to either the world of the humans or the world of the supernatural68
  • Got Mercy a Big Word of the Day calendar for Christmas227
  • Used his magic to help burn Mercy's Rabbit to ash334

Smoke Bitten

  • Tad could keep Jesse safe, and he was a good shoulder to cry on54

Tad and the Pack

Iron Kissed

  • Tad really respected Adam172

Frost Burned

  • Tad belonged to Mercy and thus to Adam193
  • Warren taught Tad to play gin rummy when he was a kid207
  • Impressed with Asil's swordmanship; a bit of hero worship coming off Tad213
  • Tad drew the silver out of the wolves who needed it—including Ben. Kelly got the worst of it, as Tad’s skill improved with practice244

Night Broken

  • Enjoyed exchanging juvenile remarks with Joel77

Fire Touched

  • The pack had Tad's back. Tad could keep Aiden safe, and the pack safe- and the pack would keep him safe126

  • Uncle Mike set a geas on him to not talk about the fae to Mercy171

Silver Borne

  • Was worried for Phin's safety5

Frost Burned

  • Something happened to him when he was at college; it may had something to do with why he wasn't on the reservation with the rest of the fae69
  • Because even though they don’t care a fig for the half-bloods, the pure-blooded fae send us lists of fae who did not answer the Gray Lords’ call. We, the rejected, are to watch out for these fae and turn in any purebloods we see189

Night Broken

  • It sounded like someone noticed him using magic, and he has to go talk to them223
  • Tad is unhappy and those who hold him are not listening. He is being held against his will292

Fire Touched

  • Tad hadn't been required (or asked) to retreat to the reservations, at least not until he had demonstrated that his magic was powerful and rare. Then they'd wanted him3
